Diversity

We advance Inclusive Excellence by

Advocating

for campus diversity and inclusion

Promoting

the understanding of diversity and inclusion and,

Integrating

its principles and practices into the fabric and culture of the college.

Diversity and academic excellence are interwoven. The College of Engineering continues to develop programs for K-12, Undergraduate, Graduate, Faculty, and Staff that are centered on inclusive excellence. A diverse campus and inclusive climate enriches the engineering informal curriculum, fuels creativity, launches innovation, and helps develop the next generation of engineering leaders.
